The National Electricity Grid has collapsed yet again. Recall that there was a Nationwide blackout on Monday, March 14, after the system suffered a collapse.
The latest system collapse occurred between 5pm and 6pm on Tuesday March 15. The grid generation dropped from 3,000 megawatts (MW) earlier to 1,758MW leaving just 12 Generation Companies (Gencos) operating.
A message sent out by the Eko Electricity Company to its customers reads;
”Dear Esteemed Customers, We would like to inform you of another system collapse on the National Grid which occurred at 5:10pm today. We are monitoring the situation and will continue to provide updates. Once again we apologise for the inconvenience.”
